The Island View Motel offers beachfront motel accommodation at Orford on Tasmania’s east coast. Orford is a one-hour-and-fifteen-minute drive north east of Hobart (81 kilometres) and a forty-minute drive south of Swansea (57 kilometres).
The Island View Motel has five ground floor ensuite rooms offering double, twin or single accommodation. A light breakfast is supplied to your room each day and there is also a barbecue available for use during the summer months. Orford’s cafes, hotels and restaurants are all a short walk from your room. Coin-operated laundry facilities are also available.
Orford was established in the early 1800s as a shore station to service the convict settlement on Maria Island, 20 kilometres offshore. Today, Maria Island is a national park – a place without cars, shops or the pressures of day to day life. You can camp here among historic ruins and spend your days discovering sweeping bays, rugged cliffs and mountains and remarkable wildlife.
